I understand your concerns for your baby. Try to retract it gently on daily basis for a week or so. Donot be forceful. Normlly one should not retract before age of 2 years &It is normal till 2 years of age. If you are not successful even after 10-12 days then it needs to be operated. The condition is known as phimosis &operation is circumcision. Regards.

Don't be worrried about your baby's eating habits. If he is wetting the diaper 6-8 times and making bowel movements 2-5 times a day, it means he is getting enough to eat.

Please talk very lovingly to your child and try & get details about why she is afraid. This should not be neglected. If yet your are unable to understand you should take her to a child counselor who can help her.

My son Jeremy is 14 months old and his fontanelle has still not closed. What can I do? He has also not started to walk.

My son Jeremy is 14 months old and his fontanelle has still not closed. What can I do? He has also not started to walk.
The Anterior fontanelle (AF) is simply an area on top of a baby’s head where the various bony plates that make up the skull have not yet come together. The fact that a newborn’s skull isn’t one solid bone at birth, but rather comprised of several bony plates is not just useful, but necessary, as it allows a newborn’s head to adjust enough in size to pass through the birth canal and then allow the skull to expand as babies’ brains grow considerably throughout the first year.------------AF is generally between 3 to 6 centimeters diameter during the first 6 months of life, and gradually gets smaller thereafter—closing some time between the ages of 10 and 25 months old. Any babies who are born prematurely, however, may have their anterior fontanelles close even later. -------So your question is of little concern right now and nothing to worry about-----------------------

What Is Progeria Syndrome?

What is progeria syndrome?

Progeria syndrome is the term for a group of disorders that cause rapid aging in children. In Greek, “progeria” means prematurely old. Children with this condition live to an average age of 13 years old.

Progeria syndrome is rare. According to the Progeria Research Foundation, it affects about 1 in 20 million people. An estimated 350 to 400 kids are living with the syndrome at any given time in the world. Progeria affects children regardless of their gender or ethnicity.

Types of progeria syndrome :

The most common type of progeria syndrome is Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome. It’s a rare and fatal genetic disorder. Wiedemann-Rautenstrauch syndrome is another type of progeria syndrome. It appears in children while they’re still in utero.

The adult version of progeria syndrome is Werner syndrome. The symptoms of Werner syndrome normally occur in teenagers. People with this condition may live into their 40s or 50s.

What causes progeria?

Progeria is caused by a genetic mutation. The mutation occurs in the LMNA gene. This gene is responsible for producing a protein that helps maintain the structural integrity of the nucleus in cells. Without strength in its nucleus, a cell’s structure is weak. This leads to rapid aging.

While progeria affects genes, experts don’t think it’s hereditary. Parents who have one child who has progeria don’t have a higher chance of having another child who has it.

Symptoms :

Most kids with progeria look healthy when they're born, but they start to show signs of the disease during their first year. Babies with progeria do not grow or gain weight normally. They develop physical traits including:

A bigger head
Large eyes
A small lower jaw
A thin nose with a "beaked" tip
Ears that stick out
Veins you can see
Slow and abnormal tooth growth
A high-pitched voice
Loss of body fat and muscle
Hair loss, including eyelashes and eyebrows

Diagnosing Progeria :

Since the symptoms are very noticeable, it's likely that your child's pediatrician will spot them during a routine checkup.

If you see changes in your child that seem like symptoms of progeria, make an appointment with your pediatrician or family doctor. Your doctor will do a physical exam, test hearing and vision, measure pulse and blood pressure, and compare your child's height and weight to other kids the same age.

Afterward, if your pediatrician is concerned, you may need to see a specialist in medical genetics, who can confirm the diagnosis with a blood test.

Hi we usually won't recommend cod liver oil as a source of supplements. 2 year old kid can be given everything in your family pot diet including fish and meat if you are a non veg. Avoid junk foods. Thanks.

You can take anything and its not going to harm yr baby. It's a myth. Only if u got a infection from outside u can transmit it to yr baby.

Hi. My 4 year daughter got sudden pain in right knee resultantly could not walk properly since two days before. could u tell me reasons and remedy?

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Sudden pain in a child without fever can be either a joint problem or a bone problem. Children fall and can have small fractures which can cause her to limp. A joint swelling can mean blood in her joints which will settle after a few weeks. If she is not walking, she needs to be seen by a doctor and may need an xray. It is also important to give her vit d supplements. Budecort inhalation does not cause bone softening, but oral steroids can and should be avoided as a long term treatment
